32. Very interesting
In my Skinhead example, they excluded group naturally objected on the grounds that we were discriminating against them. One of them actually threatened to sue on those grounds.

I was just a cog in the wheel, so I couldn't make company policy, but the restaurant's owners (who were themselves of a demographic minority) basically said "go ahead and sue us."


Nothing ever came of it.



I'd wondered about the all-private-money versus some-federal-dollars angle. Your post helped to clarify that--thanks!
